Curb Word artist Natalie Grant, a nine-time GRAMMY Award nominee, has released a heartfelt gospel interpretation of “Bridge Over Troubled Water” in collaboration with renowned Gospel Music artist Tasha Cobbs Leonard. Originally penned by Paul Simon and introduced to the world by Simon & Garfunkel in 1970, this timeless song draws inspiration from a classic gospel tune.

“Tasha Cobbs Leonard is one of the greatest voices of our generation,” says Grant.  “She has referred to me as a “bridge” before, and I have always prayed that’s exactly what my artistry, and my life, would be. But she has also been building bridges across genres and styles. She’s a barrier breaker. I can’t think of a better person to sing this song with.”
